The 2020 Silverado represents the second model year of the all-new, fourth-generation Silverado that launched last year as the 2019 Silverado. Chevy’s bread-and-butter light duty truck is getting various updates and changes, highlighted by the introduction of the new 3.0L LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax engine, the expanded availability of the 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine and the new GM 10-speed automatic transmission, the introduction of Vertical Trailering Mirrors and the expansion of the available wheel options. Moreover, the 2020 Silverado carries over the same exterior paint options as the 2019 model, with one exception – the deletion of Oakwood Metallic.
That’s the long and short of it with regard to the 2020 Silverado 1500 paint lineup. Beyond the deletion of Oakwood Metallic, which carried paint code GE0, no additional Silverado colors were added or removed from the palette. As such, the current 2020 Silverado paint option lineup includes the following shades (paint code listed in parentheses):
- Iridescent Pearl Tricoat (G1W)
- Havana Brown Metallic (G2X)
- Satin Steel Metallic (G9K)
- Northsky Blue Metallic (GA0)
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
- Summit White (GAZ)
- Black (GBA)
- Shadow Grey Metallic (GJI)
- Cajun Red Tintcoat (GPJ)
When the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was released, the Oakwood Metallic exterior paint color was offered with every available interior color combination and all trim levels except for the base WT models. The color was also not available on any Double Cab models or LTZ and High Country models equipped with power assist steps (BRS).
For reference, here the 2019 Silverado trim levels and color combinations:
2019 Silverado 1500 trims levels:
- Custom Trail Boss
- LT Trail Boss
- High Country
2019 Silverado interior colors:
- Jet Black
- Jet Black / Umber
- Gideon / Very Dark Atmosphere
It’s interesting that Chevrolet would discontinue Oakwood Metallic with the 2020 Silverado, and not replace it with another hue. After all, less choice is not a great thing, especially when it comes to the full-size pickup trucks, where choice and customization are highly important.
